LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) is a measurement technique capable of observing the complex vertical structure of the atmosphere. Specifically, information can be provided related to the existence and extent of aerosols and clouds with high spatial (4 m vertical) and temporal (1 min) resolution, making it well-suited for understanding atmospheric dynamics and transport processes. ECCC researchers designed, built and deployed autonomous ground-based aerosol LIDAR systems to three different locations in the oil sands region – AMS13 (November 2012 to September 2013), Oski-ôtin (October 2013 to present) and Mannix (July 2013 to March 2016). Details of the instrument by Strawbridge, 2013 can be found in Atmos.
The Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act (ATIP) became law on July 1, 1983. The Access to Information Act gives Canadian citizens, permanent residents and any person present in Canada, the right of access to information contained in government records, subject to certain specific and limited exceptions. The Privacy Act extends to individuals the right of access to information about themselves held by the government, subject to specific and limited exceptions. The Act also protects the privacy of individuals by preventing others from having access to their personal information and gives individuals substantial control over its collection, use and disclosure.
The EXCEL workbooks contained in this dataset primarily contain temporal variations of the water surface elevation (water level) at 12 locations situated along the lower Athabasca River during the 2013 spring ice breakup. This information was obtained using portable pressure (and occasionally temperature) loggers, inserted in robust casing designed to survive large water- and ice-induced forces. Such forces are generated by stationary or moving ice sheets and blocks as well as by sharp river waves that often accompany ice jam releases. Prolonged time periods of constant water level signify that the sensors were above water, recording atmospheric pressure and air temperature, where applicable.
The Blended Index (BI) is a model which employs multiple potential indicators of drought and excess moisture, such as the Palmer drought index, rolling precipitation amounts and soil moisture, and combines them into a weighted, normalized value between 0 and 100. The inputs and weights used in this model are subject to change periodically as it is optimized to best represent extent, duration and severity of impactful weather conditions. The blended index is deployed as two variations; short term (st) focusing on 1 to 3 months, and long term (lt) focusing on 6 months to 5 years.
Today it is widely recognized that human health is affected by changes to our environment and that these changes can have a positive or negative impact on our health. Developments such as the expansion of urban living environments and advanced sanitation systems have greatly contributed to improvements in population health over the last century, namely by increasing access to safe food and water. Similarly, pollution, climatic uncertainties and some significant aspects of industrial and urban development have had some negative impacts on our health.
The Survey on Financing and Growth of Small and Medium Enterprises was designed to determine the types of financing that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are using, and to collect information on recent attempts by those SMEs to obtain new financing. In addition, the survey gathers information on firm growth, engagement in international business activities, innovation and intellectual property, as well as owner characteristics.
Likelihood of business or organization to pass on any increases in its costs to customers over the next 12 months, by North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), business employment size, type of business, business activity and majority ownership, first quarter of 2022.
This data set provides a list of 2017-18 consular planning commitments for each mission and indicates which planning commitments are aligned to Global Affairs Canada's priorities for 2017-18. Missions are asked to self-identify their alignment when planning for the upcoming fiscal year. Not all planning commitments must align with Global Affairs Canada's priorities.
